Learn about the VersaGard System & its Components

S-5! VersaGard System Components

VersaGard snow retention systems are a versatile and economical two-pipe snow retention system designed to be attached to exposed-fastened or face-fastened metal roofs. The VersaGard bracket features a unique  “well” built into its base with a factory applied self adhesive butyl sealant for leak-free attachment that will not crack or split. Upon removal of the protective seal, the bracket is also fastened with gasketed fasteners for a lifetime of worry-free performance. Simple installation makes this a popular choice.

VersaGard Bracket

Manufactured using prime aircraft grade aluminum, the VersaGard bracket features a “well” built into the foot of the bracket with factory applied butyl sealant. The well protects the butyl sealant from UV exposure and helps ensure a water-tight seal.

VersaGard bracket is mounted in the flat of the panel, directly into the supporting structure of the roof, i.e. wood decking, wood or steel purlins, or trusses.

No surface preparation is necessary; simply wipe away excess oil and debris, peel the release paper from the base, align, and apply. Secure through the pre-punched holes using the appropriate screws for the supporting structure



S-5! DualPipe is a 1″ diameter aluminum tube with a 1/8″ wall engineered to work perfectly with the VersaGard snow retention system, but can also be used with any other that requires a 1″ pipe, including DualGard. Sized to fit perfectly in the VersaGard Bracket.

Comes in standard 94″ lengths so it can be shipped via UPS.

Each Section of DualPipe includes one (1) splice.


DualCollar & DualPipe Endcap

DualCollar is used to prevent the DualPipe from  migrating out of the VersaGard brackets. DualCollars should be used on both the top and bottom pipes within 7″ of each end of any run of VersaGard assembly.

DualCollar is mounted on the inside of the first and last VersaBracket.

Stainless steel DualPipe Endcaps snap into place and keep weather, debris and vermin out of the DualPipe.

DualCollar is sold in packs of four (4). Each pack also includes four (4) DualPipe Endcaps.


DualClip II

The DualClip II  is used with S-5! VersaGard snow guard/snow retention systems and mounts to DualPipe to prevent accumulated ice-dams from sliding under the snow guards uncontrolled.

One or two DualClip are used at every panel between two VersaGard brackets.

Manufactured from quality aluminum with a soft rubber foot on the bottom to prevent damage to the finish on your roof panel.
